In Alcatraz 1962 Reveals "The Drive" Details

In Alcatraz 1962 will release new album "The Drive" on October 9th, 2012 through Standby Records. The following press release was also issued about the band:

"Northern Virginia is a place like anywhere else, where the stresses of day to day life can both define and destroy the inner workings of so many people's souls. It's the kind of place where the tragedy of the individual's experiences destroys so many people, and yet defines the undying will to grow and thrive for only the strongest of the strong. For those very few people, their triumph over tragedy comes when they discover that they have The Drive.

"Formed in 2005, In Alcatraz 1962 is a band whose determination to succeed has never been questioned. Their blistering sound is regularly compared to 'The Ghost Inside on crack,' and yet provides the lyrical focus needed by so many of today's metal fans to find the deep inner determination to succeed. With their debut release on Standby Records, In Alcatraz 1962 has delivered a release in The Drive that will not only pummel fans with intensity and rage, but will prove to so many of today's expendable youth that the ills of their lives can be overcome with hard work and commitment to succeed."

"The Drive is all about overcoming any and all obstacles thrown at you in life," states the band. "The record is dark, but uplifting and inspiring. It hits hard at home. A lot of bands now are awesome on CD and all hyped up online, but when you see them live they can't deliver. We put our everything into our live shows. The audience can really feel, and connect with us. Our sound also separates us from everyone else. We're influenced by a lot of different bands and genres. We incorporate a few different genres into our music, and this allows us to reach a variety of different listeners." More...

In Alcatraz 1962 Signs With Standby Records

Cleveland-based independent record label, Standby Records, is excited to announce a new addition to the Standby family, Northern Virginia’s metal/hardcore outfit In Alcatraz 1962. Standby and In Alcatraz 1962 will team up to release the band’s debut record this spring.

“We are very excited to release our debut album with such a dedicated and committed label,” said In Alcatraz 1962 drummer, Josh Zupovitz. “We know they will treat us not only as another band, but as a family member. We look forward to collaborating with Standby Records and are ready to share our music with each and every one of you.”

Commented Standby owner, Neil Sheehan, “As we develop a rebooted version of Rock N' Roll at Standby Records, we continue to discover new acts that are rich in attitude and powered by modern day angst. Much like the rage that flowed through this band's namesake island throughout the 20th Century, In Alcatraz 1962's musical rage hits with more force than any group of murderers, rapists and criminals could ever deliver. We couldn't be happier to share their power.”

In Alcatraz 1962 will enter Cleveland’s Studio D Productions with producer, Don Debiase (Modern Day Escape, Beneath The Sky, For All Those Sleeping), in early February to begin recording the debut album.
